“The fact is, the lifecycle of our businesses is constantly changing and in order for us to position our companies as true experts and resources for brand owners and print generators, we need to be thinking differently about digital design and how our customers view information. Rashid’s session is going to open our eyes to new ideas about visually presenting information in order to survive in our highly competitive global marketplace.”
